Luxembourg: Tripartite Agreement of 31st March 2022

Authors: Celine Defay and Eloïse Hullar

The Government, the UEL and the LCGB and CGFP unions reached an agreement on 31st March 2022 to take measures in favour of businesses, purchasing power and for housing[1].

It was especially decided to:

  • postpone to April 2023 the increment that should have fallen in August 2022;
  • postpone by 12 months any potential additional increment in 2023.

There will therefore be no new indexation of salaries until April 2023.

In return, measures in favour of purchasing power will be taken, such as the energy tax credit for salaries and pensions below EUR 100,000 per year.

This agreement is valid until 31st December 2023. If the economic and social situation worsens in 2023, or if an additional index bracket is triggered in 2023, a new meeting of the Tripartite Coordination Committee will be convened.
